About

MOHEIM creates “new standard” to enrich your everyday life.

One prototype was described as "the most beautiful dustbin in the world" because of its minimalist design and unprecedented structure. In 2010, the work was presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, and four years later, it was launched as MOHEIM's first product, the SWING BIN. Since then, MOHEIM has introduced a variety of items for living spaces, from tableware to furniture. The common denominator in their designs is minimalism and simplicity, and a desire to fit smoothly into people's lives. In addition, we use traditional techniques and advanced technology to give shape to our products with an ethical approach in line with the times. MOHEIM is a brand that creates "new standards" to enrich the lives of those who own our products.

Concept

  • Arrange your space, enhance your days.

    MOHEIM creates its products by considering the purpose and meaning of design in living spaces. Designs that will never fade and can be used for a long time with affection. A sophisticated appearance that blends in perfectly with your life. We work on our designs while envisioning high-quality, harmonious daily scenes that people will cherish forever.

  • What's beyond our design? Craftsmanship

    Even things that look graceful on the outside have a well-thought-out design and structure. However, design alone is not enough to create a product. The competence and experience of the creator is always necessary. In order to realize our manufacturing ideals, we incorporate the latest technology as well as the traditional skills of the region. MOHEIM values craftsmanship in its product development.

  • Let's start thinking about sustainability.

    The word "sustainable" can be used to describe a wide variety of things. MOHEIM will continue to think about what kind of efforts will advance consideration for the environment and what will be beneficial for society. We will start with what we can do, develop items using recycled materials, and work on manufacturing with a greater awareness of "sustainability."

Message

The year was 2009. The name “MOHEIM” did not exist at that time.

In 2009, when the name “MOHEIM” did not exist yet, the story of MOHEIM began with the birth of the prototype of the SWING BIN, a dustbin that pursued my own ideals to the limit. I have been working on a number of products for more than ten years now, and what I always keep in mind is how to enrich the lives and minds of the people who own them through design, appearance, and comfort.My passion for design has never changed and will never change. I believe that tableware, furniture, storage items, etc., will enhance our daily lives while staying close to the feelings of the people who use them. We hope that MOHEIM's items, created to be timeless and long-lasting, will bring you a fulfilling everyday life.

      Just like the etymology of the word “GUILD” represents in itself, the authentic creations by groups of artists and craftsmen have been inherited through generations as antiques. It is what makes Takeuchi respect the past, and want to create things also by his own hands as a proof of guild in modern society.
